Blueberry Coffee Cake

  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 c. sliced almonds
  • 1/4 c. packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 c. flour
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1 T. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 c. margarine or butter
  • 1 c. fresh blueberries
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Confectioners' sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch pube pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle the prepared pan with a mixture of the almonds and brown sugar. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Cut in the margarine or butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Lightly stir in the blueberries.

In a small bowl, mix the egg with the milk and vanilla. Stir the milk mixture into the blueberry mixture until just combined. Carefully spread the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake for 45 minutes to an hour or until the cake is well browned and a long skewer inserted in the thickest part comes out clean.

Let the cake stand in the pan for about 5 minutes. Loosen the edges and invert onto a serving plate. Serve warm or at room temperature, dusted with confectioners' sugar.
